Victorian Gold Mizpah Heart Locket Pendant

Mizpah is a beautiful word, steeped in history and time, as it originates its meaning from the bible. It’s a word that wishes another good luck and safe return as they will be gone for a while, sailing on the seas, or traveling across lands. During the Victorian era, crossing the Atlantic took around 7 – 10 days. Ships would typically sail off at Liverpool or Queenstown and land in New York Harbor. During a time of world exploration, sea travel, and war, Mizpah became a symbol of romance, desire, and chivalry. To gift this to another meant they were indelible on your heart, and with this locket they could find comfort when away.

This antique MIZPAH locket was handcrafted in England around 1900. It’s a heart-shaped late-Victorian locket, engraved with a graceful scrolling motif on the front and the back. The front of this pendant bears the romantic sentiment, “MIZPAH” and the back bears the gold purity hallmark, “9 CT BACK & FRONT”. Inside the locket is one frame. This piece measures 36 x 33.5 mm and it weighs 4.3 grams.

As you can see from my lane, the romantic in me adores these sweetheart lockets! What a charming way to court the one you love.
